Every Thursday and Friday night we stay up later than usual to watch, Avatar: The Last Airbender cartoon marathon. Nick channel is airing a marathon from 7:00 to 9:30 pm every Thursday and Friday and we’re now near the end of the series. Before, I would see Z watch it every afternoon on TV5 but since I was busy before with my job I couldn’t watch it with him. Now I don’t have an excuse anymore so even though I had, at first ,no interest I forced myself to watch it. I heard its movie version would be shown in the theaters and I wanted to at least be familiar with the characters when we watch it.
A few weeks later, I don’t have to force myself anymore as I have come to love Aang’s journey to master the four elements with his friends, Katara and Sokka. Even hubby is hooked and I feel proud whenever I have to explain something to him that he doesn’t understand because he missed an episode or two. The series is about to end and I feel sad that we don’t have something to look forward anymore every Thursday and Friday night.
Anyway, in doing this I have realized something. For years, I tried so hard to grow up and be mature but now that I have a little boy I have to be a kid at heart again so we can bond together. It would take some effort but I think I could get used to this kind of life.
